Wavves main man Nathan Williams and his brother Kynan are back with their fourth release as Sweet Valley. Their latest instrumental mixtape is dubbed simply SV and marks yet another step forward for their production prowess. Thus far, their ongoing collaboration with Fool's Gold Records has yielded lysergic summer jams (Stay Calm), Zelda-inspired grooves (Eternal Champ), and a heavily weeded holiday offering (Jenova). This brand new 12-track set might be the most ambitious yet — a maximal roundup of disparate ideas that flow together quite nicely: drum 'n' bass pile-ups, '80s-sourced effects, pitch-warped soul vocals, haunting textures, tinny percussives, and blown-out synth sounds. While past works have nodded to J Dilla and Dipset, this one muscles in the territory cut out by folks like Ryan Hemsworth and Shlohmo. Stream below and download via Mediafire:
